New Community Park Coming to Carmel Valley
Carmel Valley Planning Board member Ken Farinsky, District 1 Councilmember Barbara Bry, Assistant Park and Recreation Director Andrew Field and Pardee Homes Division President Jimmy Ayala breaking ground at the site of the Pacific Highlands Ranch Community Park.
Elected officials, community volunteers and members of the team designing and building the park celebrated the official groundbreaking of the new Pacific Highlands Ranch Community Park on June 23. A collaborative effort between the City of San Diego, the Pacific Highlands Ranch community and Pardee Homes, the 13-acre park is expected to open in September of 2018.
Centrally located next to Pacific Trails Middle School, Canyon Crest Academy and The Village at Pacific Highlands Ranch, the park will feature amenities for the entire family, including a large turf field to accommodate a variety of sports, a recreation center, small and large dog parks, a traditional children’s playground and discovery play area. The community park will also contain the City’s first ever public parkour area and bike bump track.
Community involvement from residents and surrounding neighbors was key to the planning and overall design of the park. Its final design garnered unanimous approval from local planning groups and the City of San Diego’s Park & Reaction Board. When completed, it will provide a space where the community can gather, host little league games, exercise, play and connect with one another.
Surrounded by 1,300 acres of preserved natural habitat, Pardee Homes’ community of Pacific Highlands Ranch provides the ability for residents to live an active and nature-driven lifestyle. Amenities include a multi-use trail system, natural open space and parks, plus a vibrant mixed-use Village, award-winning schools and convenient access to regional freeways, employment centers, universities and beaches.
